Classics Trip

by Sarah Handley

This has certainly been a hectic year for our senior students with many of the 'outside of the classroom' trips being cancelled. For senior classics, this included the disappointing loss of the annual University of Canterbury classics day. However, we were lucky enough to secure a visit to the Teece Museum which holds the largest collection of classic artifacts in the southern hemisphere.

Year 13 Dean's Report

by Chris McLaren

Tena koutou katoa. Māori is an official language of Aotearoa and it is only through practise that we become more confident at using it. When I started as Dean and greeted students with a simple Kia ora, many students were surprised but now most are far more comfortable being greeted in this unique language.

Year 10 Dean's Report

by Sarah Handley

Kia ora koutou. It's hard to believe that we are now closer to the end of the year than we are to the start! I am thrilled by the wonderful organisational skills of our Year 10's, being the first year group to have all of their 2021 option forms completed. This enables us to start sorting the timetable for next year and ensuring as many students as possible get the options they want.

The benefit of reading for just 20 minutes a day

by Kelsey Morgan

It may feel like a challenge to find 20 minutes each day to sit down and read with, beside, or to, your child. However, this small adjustment will make a large impact on their overall reading ability.
